Seattle Youth Organize Islamophobia Awareness Day To Promote Understanding
by Iman Mohamed
The sun was peeking through the clouds on Saturday, April 25 at Victor Steinbreuck Park in downtown Seattle, where a crowd gathered to celebrate the first ever Islamophobia Awareness Day.
The event was created by a group of Muslim girls from Rainier Beach High School.
They were motivated by what they see as misconceptions surrounding their religion and especially the way Muslims are portrayed in the media. That's why they opened up a safe space to talk about Islam, and answer questions from the public.
